In order for our audiences to get to know our artists better, we’ve asked those appearing at Ravinia this summer to answer some lighthearted questions, and we will share the answers we received with you.

Q: What will you hope to be doing a year from now?

Ryan: laying on a beach made of Old Bay Seasoning


Q: Do you have an annoying habit?

Adam: I love to pick my nose and am not ashamed to do so in public, much to my wife’s chagrin.


Q: What do you do to wind down after a performance?

Brian: I usually put my hands in a bucket of ice right when we get off stage so my fingers aren't so inflamed when it’s time to abuse the hand drums again the next day. Then I'll go over the set list in my head, and with my bandmates, and figure out anything that needs to get addressed the next night.  Then our tour manager will come in, hand us each a Sharpie, and say “Time for the aftershow” . . . I should say that none of this winds me down at all.


Don't miss Guster and Jack's Mannequin perform at Ravinia Festival on Saturday, Sept 3. Tickets are still available!
